Vello Bracket Gives Producers an Extra Hand

Stephen Yagielowicz

Sometimes the simplest and smallest things can make the biggest difference when it comes to capturing highquality photo and video content — such as the sub-$14 Vello CB-500 Dual Shoe Bracket that makes mounting accessories to a camera fast and easy.

Leveraging the video recording capabilities of today’s advanced HDSLR cameras and digital camcorders, Vello’s CB-500 features two standard size cold-shoes for securely attaching accessories such as lights, microphones, mixers and solid-state recording decks.

Vello’s CB-500 features two standard size cold-shoes for securely attaching accessories such as lights, microphones, mixers and solid-state recording decks.

The bracket also allows the camera’s hot-shoe to still be used for accessory mounting.

A quarter-inch 20-thread mount allows the bracket to be attached between your camera and a tripod or a monopod for more flexible shooting.

Detached, the bracket is also usable as a stable filming support, with its rubber side grip providing a steady handle for large hands.

The beauty of this bracket and others like it is not just that it allows extra “stuff” to be conveniently stuck to a camera it also allows users to improve the quality of their images.

For example, by positioning an on-camera light to the top and side of the camera lens’ axis, modeling may be dramatically improved, providing more depth and texture, rather than the flat, washed-out appearance of many on-camera lighting systems.
